I stay logged in all the time and just come and go. Easier than remembering another password (old timer disease
). I look at the top of the main page when I come in and it tells me if I have new PM's and how many total I have stored.
I set my options when the board changed and it is giving e-mail notices on posts that I am active on but I set not to e-mail notify for PM's.
Haven't had any trouble accessing profile, maybe a PM to TulsaJeff is in order so he knows you are having a problem.
